Atomic App is a reference implementation of the Nulecule specification. Packaged Atomic App containers are "Nuleculized" and each component of the package is a "Nulecule".
Atomic App is used to bootstrap packaged container environments and run them on multiple container orchestrators. It is designed from the ground-up to be portable and provider pluggable.
A "packaged installer" for all container-based environments and applications. Replace all those bash and Ansible scripts with one container-based deployment tool.
Target multiple providers: Specify the provider you want the Atomic App to run on. It supports Kubernetes, OpenShift, Mesos+Marathon and Docker.
Inherit already packaged containers: Create composite applications by referencing other Nulecule-compliant applications. For example, plugging in an alternative well-orchestrated database in another referenced container image.
Fetch and run entire environments: Use
atomicapp runto run pre-packaged Nuleculized containers.

This README contains some high level overview information on Atomic App. The detailed documentation for Atomic App resides in the docs directory. The index provided conveniently links to each section below:
- Quick start
- Getting started
- Nulecule file
- File handling
- Specification coverage
An extended guide on the
Nulecule file format is also available.
Atomic App can be used to launch a cluster of containers (application servers, databases, etc.).
For a list of already packaged examples, visit the nulecule-library repo.
We currently support:
- OpenShift 3
- Marathon (Mesos)
Providers represent various deployment targets. They can be added by placing the artifact within the respective in
artifacts/ folder. For example, placing
